IBM Cloud - Structured Ideas

Shape the future of IBM!

We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:

Post your ideas

Start by posting ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and vote them if they matter to you.

  1. To post a new idea - select "Add a new idea" and where asked select the appropriate category this idea relates to. Provide requested information to allow us to get a better understanding of your request.

  2. Vote ideas that matter most to you.

  3. Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea.

Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests

The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The offering manager team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.

Receive notifications on the decision

Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.

NOTE: All IBM employees must enter Ideas through this Ideas Portal.

    Do you need an API to access the data that is in sysdig?
    You can also push the sysdig data into kafka and from there into a different data store: https://www.ibm.com/cloud/blog/announcements/streaming-capability-now-available-in-ibm-cloud-monitoring

    Or do you need something else?

    As explained in the email thread, we need to have ability to fetch the data through API.

    From a VSI there is a Launch Monitoring button:


    I’ve created a platform log for the region so I see this for the VPC (which has one volume on one instance)


    Have you seen this? Were you hoping for more?

    Hi team,
